Trailer for DJ Caruso’s ‘Standing Up’


I missed this when it was released two weeks ago but there’s finally a trailer for Standing Up, the film adaptation of the beloved young adult novel The Goats.

The movie has the feel of a darker Moonrise Kingdom as it tells the story of two pre-teens who thanks to bullies at Camp Tall Pine find themselves on Goat Island and decide they’d be better off not returning to camp. The movie was directed by D.J. Caruso (Disturbia, I Am Number Four) and stars Val Kilmer, Chandler Canterbury and Annalise Basso.
